This is a treat we made years ago during a fun preschool camping theme! It was a big hit with the kiddos, and it was super simple to make.

easy treat for a preschool camping theme
Marshmallows – medium or large
Sticks of some kind – candy sticks, bamboo skewers, or even straws (when all else fails)
Chocolate – either chocolate chips or broken pieces of chocolate bars
Place the marshmallows on a stick of your choosing. We usually use popsicle candy sticks, but straws are our fallback when out of those sticks. I’m sure bamboo skewers would work, too, as long as they aren’t sharp.
Crush the graham crackers. Kids always seem to enjoy this step, and I think it’s pretty cathartic, myself. Place some graham crackers in a zipper bag and get to crushing. Fingers work well, as does banging a plastic hammer (not that I know that from experience or anything!) 🙂
Melt the chocolate. During our preschool camping theme a few years ago, we melted the chocolate in a fondue pot. That worked out really well, and we were able to supervise the kiddos as they used it. At home, I just place some chocolate chips into a microwave-safe cup, add a dash of milk, and then microwave it all for about 20 seconds. Then I stir it all up until it’s smooth.
Now it’s time for dipping! Grab a marshmallow-on-a-stick and dip it into the chocolate. Let some of the excess chocolate drip off, then dip it into graham cracker crumbs.
Enjoy! These tend to be eaten right away, in my experience.
